Tuesday Trigger with MoxieFab

I was delighted when I saw this week’s Tuesday Trigger at MoxieFab World! Poppies! How perfect can the timing be that I recently got my Hero Arts poppies set and haven’t yet inked it up?

So here is my card for the challenge:

Cardstock: PTI rustic cream
Stamp: Hero Arts Poppies, PTI Trendy Treetops sentiment
Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics, Crayons

Here is the inspiration image from MoxieFabWorld:

Surprised at the black smudges around the flowers? What would you think if I told you I added those on purpose? 🙂 Yes I did! And no I’m not mad!

I started with stamping cleanly on a panel but before the image looked like it was missing something. then I saw this old newspaper copy lying around and saw how some images had extra smudges and some weren’t fully clear. So threw out my first panel and started over!

This time I inked the stamp, added some smudges to the inked stamp and removed ink from some lines. Stamped the image and stamped again without reinking just a little off from the first image. This is the result! Colored it with my Copics and added in the sentiment. Colored the background with a crayon and added some pearls for the poppy centers.

Hope you enjoyed my one layer card! I am submitting this to the following challenges:
